Ah! There you go then. Excellent.

In that case, the options I see are (in priority order):

1) Contact the author with your proposed changes, possibly with the
actual code or possibly leaving that for later, for inclusion in the
original project.

2) Ask the author if he's okay with you maintaining the Python 3
equivalent version as a separate project, under the same name.

3) If you can't get in touch with the author, just maintain that Py3
version, but maybe under a different name to avoid accidental
